From: firstname.lastname@example.org (David Gerard) Newsgroups: alt.religion.scientology Subject: CoS in local city directories Date: 4 Sep 1997 21:41:07 +1000 Message-ID: <email@example.com> Many local councils/municipalities/counties have Web pages, and they may do some sort of local directory (for the benefit of residents and tourists). I found some CoS stuff on one today. http://www.gleneira.vic.gov.au/servdir.htm - City of Glen Eira, Directory of Services "This page is your guide to accessing the on-line Directory of resources and services available within the municipality." The CoS has no listing under the 'Religion' section itself, which is only organisations actually within Glen Eira. (Although the Melbourne Mission - which I have yet to go and have a look at *sigh* - would I think be within Glen Eira.) FURTHER PROJECTS: * Look up other municipalities and city directories for CoS info. I'm sure I'll get to this one day. (I just tripped over this directory whilst idly web-searching.) * Why don't you look up what they have bothered listing in *your* city. Be sure to make a calm and reasoned fuss about it if they are deceptive. (Their listings here are not at all what I would call deceptive.) The 'Services' directory has listings for organisations all over Melbourne. The CoS org is listed there (as is the Citizens Commission on Human Rights - CoS link *is* mentioned in their listing, the phone number is 9654 8970, which is Rev Mary Anderson's phone), but the mission isn't. I *must* get out and have a look at this 'mission'. 'C' listing: http://www.gleneira.vic.gov.au/_servdir/SI_C.HTM Top level: http://www.gleneira.vic.gov.au/_servdir/serindex.htm The 'Keywords' directory: The CoS has a listing under 'Philosophy' ... and, on the same page of the index, is a listing for a cult information service. (which I will look into further in my Copious Free Time). The CCHR has a listing under 'Psychiatric' too - see below. I'd love to know what you get for your membership and whose Gross Income statistic the money gets added to. The index isn't particularly intuitively designed, and you can't do an actual search.
